A multidimensional goddess, she possesses various divine facets, names and personas. The destroyer of evil with ten mighty arms, each carrying its own weapon, she is Shakti or Mahishasuramardini.
Durga is also Sati, the object of death who gives up Her kingdom, and she is also Kali – black as the night in Her rage and fury with a garland of skulls adorning Her neck. She is the serene Parvati who is the consort of Lord Shiva, and She is also Bhavani – the symbol of life. Her other names include Amba, Basanti, Annapurna, Tara, Ambika, and Jagadhatri. Durga is revered as the most powerful among Goddesses, all across India. As Santoshi Mata, She appears standing along with Her tiger. However
Durga, through all her forms, encompasses the quintessence of salvation and sacrifice. She is the very crux of divine knowledge, wealth, power, bounty and beauty, with Saraswati and Lakshmi as Her daughters.
Goddess Durga is the inherent dynamic energy and the divine life-force from which the supreme consciousness manifests itself. It’s believed that Durga is the sum-total of the combined powers of Lakshmi, Kali and Saraswati.
She is often depicted as a beautiful woman with ten arms that bear divine weapons to protect all that is pure and sacred. She overcomes evil and negativity, and bestows knowledge and sustenance. The festival of Navratri, celebrated with fervour all over India, is dedicated to the nine divine forms of Goddess Durga. The festival symbolizes the victory of good over evil. She is the very personification of the divine female power.
